1st Sunday Advent Reading – Hope

We would like to thank Benson and Jayci White for lighting our 1st Advent candle.  The 1st candle represents HOPE. 

Isaiah 9:2, 6–7:
“The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
    a light has dawned. […]
For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
    there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
    and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
    with justice and righteousness
    from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
    will accomplish this.” (NIV)
